I get so tired of reading crude erotica. This was a refreshing break, one I enjoyed immensely. I hadn't read the earlier installments, so went through all three this morning.
Only one "whoops" -- at the wedding reception, it's not a "garter belt" thing, just a ceremonial "garter" toss! We wouldn't want her sexy thigh-highs to fall down, now would we? [smile]
Thank you for a superbly crafted - and erotic - piece of work. I'm going to bookmark you and go back and read your other works now....
Perfect! Flawless! Warm! Loving!
There are perfect people in this world, and they are rewarded as this story explained. This story was ever long, but never flagged. Entertaining, yet believeable. This author has a skill that makes me sit back in awe. This story will endure as a classic on this site, along with Laura's Vineyard, A Whisper of Silk, The Grade-Whore and Sawtooth Mountain. I tip my hat.
But you already knew that. I told you it'd be received well! Great ending!
Fantastic story...well done!
What a sweet, touching story. Brings a tear to the eye of this old man.
I truly enjoyed this entire series. Just goes to show you what perseverance and real love can do for people. Family really does mean a lot. Thanks for the story.
Of all the stories I've read on Lit, this one makes me smile, laugh and cry all at the same time, Thank you!
I have now read 2 of you stories. I have a few more to read of your works. They are all simply wonderful.
i very much so enjoyed reading this 3rd & final chapter. A very fitting end indeed. I love how you wrapped up the story where everyone was concerned. You are an amzing author & I am still in awe of your talent! I am now going on to read your other entries. You have found a permanent place at the top of my favorites list!
This was beautiful. I read it all in one setting and cried at the end.
There is hardship here and glowing love as well as erotcism.
The problem of self-esteem is real and was well presented.
This is now officially my favorite story on this website. It totally surpassed the others.
It was well written, the pacing was right, the plot was brilliant... just amazing!
I think this could be a novel if further developed. If it gets published, I would totally buy it. So worth the money...
That story was one of the best stories I have ever read. The standard of your work passes everyone I can think of on this site. Some authors have one or two stories that are good, in your case, your entire collection of work is amazing. Not only that, it's good for a read over and over again!
I'm sure I'm not the only one who thinks this, so, I really o hope you continue writing, because everything you seem to write is brilliant.
A beautifully told story. You do have quite a few typos, enough to interrupt the smooth flow of the storyline.
Thank you for this terrific tale. Very few have the skill and the heart for creating such a warming, infatuating story. Thank you again. Wilhelm & friends
Life is a Soap Opera is the 2nd story of yours that I have read. I didn't I would find anything better then the one about Brianne. But this was was great. I can't wait to read more of your stories. Keep up the good work.
Thank you for taking the trouble to contribute such a well conceived, well written, and heartwarming story! I like the fact that sex is subservient to a well-plotted and compelling story rather than the alternative of having a feeble story serving solely as a weak excuse to justify long and lurid descriptions of sex. One of the beauties of the Literotica web site is that it allows authors to tell love stories as they should be told, with all the physical as well as the spiritual components of love on full display. Inclusion of both components dramatically intensifies any love story, making it much more compelling than the typical published love story novel. Your relating this story in the manner you have makes it that much richer, and I vigorously applaud!
Thank you again for developing this story and then sharing it with your readers!
Life is one big soap opera some are good - some are crap but mostly they are what you make it - we can all dream and wish life was like this soap opera - excellent read.
Fantastic read,well written and wonderfully romantic.
Just amazing. Very romantic, erotic but also inspirational... something I didn't expect to find on here. Will check out your other stories.
Gotta love a good romance with a happy ending. Sweet and well written. Thanks.
A love story with nice people doing nice things. Sound boring? Not with superb writing and engaging characters. My interest was captured with the first scene. This is one of only a handful of stories I will be reading again.
What a wonderful story. I really enjoyed it. Great character development and plot. This is the first of your stories I've read, but certainly not the last. Gualterio
I have to say, you really pack an emotional punch. Your stories manage to combine episodes of incredible eroticism, with the story line and character development to make the sex seem well-placed and worthwhile.
Thanks for clearly making the effort to create works of powerful literature!
I read all three chapters and was fully drawn into the story. For the time, I was a part of their lives.
ALL of your stories are wonderful but this one is BEYOND TOTALLY WONDERFUL!!!!! I hope and pray you write more with this underlying theme...you should REALLY be publishing a book...this could potentially be turned into a movie!!!
1:30 in the morning, started reading at 11pm. you have a gift. thanks for a great story.
Absolutely amazing series! You truly have a gift. My life was enriched by reading this story.
HLD you write some beautiful stories, Hopefully some parts taken from your own life
A Soap Opera indeed! A great one, by the way. Thank you, HLD, you've got it just perfect once more. I'm your fan! :)
Usually the epilogues are about them in a few years and how they still love each other. That's cool, but I loved how deep this one was. Sad for Kimmy even though she wasn't really a part of the story, and even though I'm not religious at all the end positively destroyed my heart and brought me closer to crying than I have been since the 2nd grade.
You have the 'something' that defines a good writer.
This is really a very nice story. .
I hope I can treat my partner as well as Gabe treated Bailey.
Thanks for writing this story. Really appreciate it.
Thanks for a beautiful story. I'm planning to work my way through your other submissions.
This story really struck a chord with me due to the endometriocis. Even I have had the surgery due to ovarian cysts & my husband & I have been trying to have children for the past 4 years..... But we are planning for IVF & praying for it to go well & be a success. Wish us luck!
Thanks for the story.
....very, very soapy, but oh so nice. I like your sense of humour.
once again THANK YOU
What a really great story. It again brought out all the emotions.
I could not stop and finished at 1:50 AM. I have read several of your stories and all very good, especially "Check Yes or No", "Impersonating Brianne" and "Sales Team". I am planning on reading some more.
Thanks for another great love story. Drac
Your writing strikes a chord within me. The last sentence of "Check "Yes"or "No" always brings a tear as does sections of this work. As with all great pieces of writing, every piece of the plot is in balance and contributes to the narrative. The characters are real people in my eyes and that helps with the reading of your work. They are human, with faults and fears, dreams and desires.
You Sir are damn good at what you do! Keep it up!
-Overall, a B+ or A- for the writing and continuity.
-I have to give it a C- on probability.
-Overall a very nice story that probably would have been just as good without the sex.
Stop saying "Nothing wrong with that" every time you suggest someone is gay. Just believe that there's nothing wrong with being homosexual or bisexual and it will come through in your writing. Methinks you do protest too much...
A beautiful romantic story.
Yesterday, I'm searching a romantic story before going to bed. A very good one. After reading the best "Imprersonating Breanne".
I hesitated for "Life is..." because is classified "Mature" and I wanted a "Romance".
After reading some comments, I begin the story.
After 15 minutes, I stop reading, return to the beginning and read less rapidly,
At 1H00 in the mornig, I decided to stop at 2H00.
At 2H00, I decided to stop at 3H00.
At 3H00, I decided another 5 minutes.
At 4H00, I decided another 5 minutes.
At 5H00, I decided another 5 minutes, not very convincing or a slow-down in the story.
At 6H00, I turn off the light, open the curtains for the daylight and... fuckoff, I will stop at the end of the storie.
Finally I was married and has beautiful children... no... I was sleeping at 9H30 and had beautiful dreams. Excuse me, I lack some sleeping.
Thanks for writing beautiful stories like that. I think I become more romantic in the fifties... or I lack a little sleeping. FB
As always your story draws us in a makes them our friends and family
Beautifully written. (I have *got* to do something about all of this dust around here. It keeps getting in my eyes when I read your stories).
This was my 3rd or 4th read of this story and parts of it make my eyes water up a little. Like many submissions, the final few pages cover a little too much in a compact finish. But I am not complaining as this is one of my favorite stories with sufficient but not too much erotica. Keep the stories coming HLD.
it was as if they were lesser and inferior beings.
and, you were pretty hard on some of the cast members.
his father? mother? brother? even the ones close by were lucky to make it past 35.
Some of the commentors didn't like the plot : Too simploistict,too shallow, too-too. I guess they never read the title of the story. Guys: IT is a Soap Opera. For me it
was three 5's. Great. Don't ever stop writing, even if you die.
Once again I finish your story with a smile on my face, thanks!
Yes to all the claims that its trite, corny etc. But the dialogue, characters, story arc, detail (the secret phone number; the reveal of homelessness) furnished the story with a reality of its own. Hey if you want flatout sex, go read the writer's OTHER stories. The contrast will tell you something about skill in storytelling. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
